Clearly, we are not short on choices when we decide to release the moths from our wallets and purses and buy tickets to our next adventure. So, may we suggest a place that most of us have likely have not visited? That could be anywhere, but today we suggest Sumatra and why you should zoom to this captivating country.

Sumatra is as modern and progressive as you might expect.

Sumatra (also Sumatera) is one of Indonesia‘s large island and the sixth largest island in the world. Wild and rugged, Sumatra is a blend of Mother Nature extremes, blessed with natural wealth as well as proneness to natural disasters. Volcano eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and landslides are common headline grabbers for this one of the world’s richest ecosystems. But nobody can deny Sumatra’s beauty from the top of majestic volcanoes to the lush of the jungles and down at sea level, where idyllic deserted beaches are scattered along the island.
